Description Michael Schwendt 2009-08-19 10:46:43 UTC
Description of problem:

checking for glibc threads implementation... NPTL

checking for 'is_quitting' patch in /usr/bin/xmms... not found
configure: WARNING: *** /usr/bin/xmms is not patched! ***
NOTE: For xmms-crossfade to work properly, a patch for xmms
      itself is required. Without this patch, xmms will lock up
      or segfault when exitting while a song is being played.
      This happens only with the NPTL implementation of POSIX threads.
      See patches/README for details.

checking for 'songchange' patch in /usr/bin/xmms... not found
configure: WARNING: *** /usr/bin/xmms is not patched! ***
NOTE: For xmms-crossfade to properly detect songchanges, a patch
      for xmms is available. See patches/README for details.

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2009-09-14 20:51:07 UTC
Funny, this is actually a false positive because the configure script is doing a simple "strings" on /usr/bin/xmms, which fails to find what it's looking for because it's a symlink to /usr/libexec/xmms here.

I'll fix this in the xmms-crossfade package, but I'll also update the crossfade patch inside the main xmms package since the latest sources ship with a more recent version.

Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2009-09-14 21:29:26 UTC
It wasn't a symlink, it's a wrapper. I'm tired. I've included a somewhat ugly patch to configure* to hardcode the check on /usr/libexec/xmms since I haven't found a way to pass /usr/libexec as the first place to look for xmms.
